This may be flamebait on this story but I though I would point out how easy it can be to get Ubuntu up and running. I have to spend hours after installing almost every distro to add mp3, flash, java, xmms, multimedia codecs etc. This is copy paste stuff with the help of sites like ubuntuguide.org but check out the extras CD in this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=150088
To install the CD to HDD run:
sudo sh /media/cdrom0/install.sh
To install every package on it run:
sudo sh $HOME/ug-install.sh -auto
(-auto option optional
And that is it, 2 commands to get a full up and running Linux distro wupporting multimedia etc. For the first time in ~7 years I would have to say that the Linux desktop may actually be in sight.
